You can tell A LOT about a couple by how they tell you their love story. When Roel & Janelle told us how they met, it wasn't without a few giggles and huge smiles.
On April 1, 2009, their mutual friend mentioned that Janelle was newly single to Roel and even called her to come visit him at his work. This is the part where Roel started laughing a little bit describing his first impression of Janelle - "she was wearing a trench coat and had different colors on, so I was like 'okayyyyy'" From this day on, they started hanging out, and it wasn't until their road trip to Las Vegas later that year that he knew she was "the one." This trip gave them the opportunity to have deep conversation and learn more about each other (a 9 hour road trip will do that to you!). Afterwards, Janelle realized that their relationship was a "good thing." :)
These two will be tying the knot tomorrow, but it also is the start of a journey that will lead them to their lives together in Hawaii later this year (where he will be stationed). Because of this, they wanted their engagement session to have elements of the Bay Area and also some of their favorite things they love to do together so that they can take these memories with them to the islands. From hanging out at the Embarcadero, to wine tasting at their favorite wine bar and the craziness of the mirror maze at Pier 39, it was a lot of fun with these two! Enjoy the images. :)
